Memo for the fonts and letter size when using dvi2ps/ps2pdf

Create figures in .eps with embedded fonts: use ps2eps/ps2epsi or eps2eps/eps2epsi to convert the figures. Besides, add option "-Pdownload35" to the utility 'dvips.' 
  • For figures from MATLAB: 1) Save as .pdf; 2) Convert to .ps via pdf2ps; 3) Convert to .eps via ps2eps/ps2epsi
  • For figures from Dia: 1) Save as .eps; 2) Convert to .eps w/ fonts via eps2eps/eps2epsi
A much simpler solution: when using the printer Adobe PDF, uncheck 'Rely on system fonts only; do not use document fonts.' Here you go!
